Kettering Council has received a planning application for a 24-hour Truck stop facility, which would include a petrol station and service building on land off Orton Road near Rothwell.

It would need to be secure. One of our drivers got his curtains slashed one night last week whilst parked on Thurrock Services. There was nearly more hole than curtain, 4-5 cuts each side! He had to have it repaired, once he'd tipped it, before he could re-load for home.

No, G-C. They opened a couple of boxes but must not have liked the stuff they found.

truck stops

evening all last we were in blighty we were totaly taken aback at what the truckies have to stop at mindless motorway eateries more like super markets or caravans standing in the middle of nowhere freezing cold & or soaking wet are these better than the greasy dish places? I did midlands to n/e or hants to n/e off & on for a few years always stopped at the southern end of the donny bypass A1(m) cups used the front larger receptacles around the r/h side (wouldn/t say mugs ) did a good supper on a sunday night,or any night even the navigator prefered the side door if we were that way our son did ,the girl always made a fuss over kids made them feel special

Just browsing and saw this thread, ...anyone remember Chrisses caffe on the A40 at the top of the hill from Stokenchurch ? It was always packed and did accommodation as well as food, even the police used it for breaks.
Drove past it last weekend,
Charles
